Wow! you must either be a professional or just have grande huevos to cyber attack the Feds!


the fact that the government Web sites were still being affected three days after it began signaled an unusually lengthy and sophisticated attack



The Treasury Department, Secret Service, Federal Trade Commission and Transportation Department Web sites were all down at varying points over the holiday weekend and into this week, according to officials inside and outside the government. Some of the sites were still experiencing problems Tuesday evening.



This is very strange. You don't see this," he said. "Having something 100 percent down for a 24-hour-plus period is a pretty significant event


VERY interesting! I will try to keep updated on any other news pertaining to this attack, and invite you all to share your thoughts, opinions, and knowledge.

Or it's all apart of the inside plan to false flag an operation so they can enforce the Cyber Act 2009 and expand it's powers so you guys in the USA lose your free internet.


The EU is already rolling out the internet tax on state at a time so it's more likely than you think that something big is going on in the west to try and take control the internet from the people.

Wow, that's surprising and kind of scary. I wonder why this hasn't been discussed in the MSM? Oh, that's right - MJ died and nothing else could possibly be considered newsworthy!

I think it's more likely going to be some massive wipe of all financial data, where they can start everything over. I highly doubt, that they could regulate the internet without upsetting people. Now if by some circumstance all financial information was wiped...you could keep everything in your possession. While people would be really upset all debts wiped clean might make the average person not question much.

Just in time when they're going to be audited? That's kinda like shredding documents isn't it? ( as-if)

I would imagine most of these electronic parts in their computers are made in China? Next will be your home appliances. They will send messages to each other to quit working.

But if they wiped the data it would be good for one country but surely not the other investor countries?? I'm pretty sure they'll be angry if they lose their investments.

So maybe we could be looking at the intro of WW3 if that actually happened.

Exactly my thought.

holy smokes, cyber-warfare just became a whole lot more hardcore, I wonder if it's more than DDOS attacks and actual hacked machines and accounts

I can picture the next Tom Clancy novel already

Does this mean that the Federal Government's NWO is not going to be the internet SHUTDOWN Agency at their selected moment, and instead is susceptible to BEING shut down - whenever?

This could set the entire NWO thing back for . . . months!

That's an interesting list of Agencies...

I would say the Powers that Be are just doing a little 'accounting adjustments' during the holidays.

The Secret Service would normally be the premier body in investigating serious and complex financial crimes, the Federal Trade Commission would likely have some of the documentation of what ever they were Investigating and the Department of Transportation...means Shipping, as in Laws of the Sea as in International Contract Law.

Sounds like an inside job, too embarassingly close to someone special, time to make a potential problem go away.

Computers rule the Earth now!

If they tax the existing Internet, people will just make a new one. The People could simply go back to bulletin board services where you dial in to individual boards using a modem. With today's technology and a new client/server program, each board could function just like a regular web site. It would be nearly impossible for TPTB to track a decentralized communications medium such as that.

It would be slower... but, whatever.

Being that the North Korean government launched missiles on the 4th against U.N. rules, i'm guessing that they did it.

WW3 alone will wipe out the creditors. It's what war does best.

archive.easymodo.net...

I heard from a friend on AIM that the site 4chan is currently being DDoSed right now to the point where it has been completely taken offline. The site I just linked to archives the posts of certain boards and allows for discussion of topics that have been deleted already. Apparently, it has happened to 4chan before, so I don't know if it's related or not, but it's an odd coincidence that the DDoSing of 4chan happened around today or yesterday.

EDIT: Here's a link to the 4chan status blog: status.4chan.org...

Apparently, it's been going nonstop all day.

Looks like South Korea is being hit also...

SKorean Web sites hit by suspected cyber attack


SEOUL, South Korea – South Korea says the Web sites of major government agencies, banks and Internet sites were paralyzed due to a suspected cyber attack.

The state-run Korea Information Security Agency said that Web sites of the presidential Blue House, the Defense Ministry, the National Assembly, Shinhan Bank, Korea Exchange Bank and top Internet portal Naver have been down or had access problems starting late Tuesday.


Did Lil' Kim get a laptop?

What would he gain by DDoSing American and South Korean sites? Governments don't DDoS sites, they hack them. I'm guessing it's coming from some bored, yet crafty, teenagers who hate the government and are looking for some fun.
